We suppose it really was only a matter of time…
In it’s annual fundraiser for Carousel Theatre for Young People and Touchstone Theatre, Vancouver’s lawyer community has banded together for a production of Legally Blonde:The Musical.
Legally Blonde:The Musical tells the story of Elle Woods, the Delta Nu sorority girl who enrolls at Harvard Law School to win back her ex-boyfriend Warner. Along the way she discovers how her knowledge of the law can help others by successfully defending exercise queen Brooke Wyndham in a murder trial.
The Lawyer Show cast features 34 lawyers from all walks of legal life, from current law students to partners in large corporate firms, in an effort to prove that perhaps acting and law really do have much in common. Vancouver Barrister and Solicitor Ashley Syer plays the pink loving blonde and features Maggie as Elle’s dog Bruiser.
A portion of each ticket sold is considered a charitable donation eligible for a tax receipt, with all funds raised going directly to support the production and community outreach activities of Carousel and Touchstone Theatres. Tickets also include a post-show reception and new this year are special pre-show dinners offered at four Granville Island restaurants.
The Lawyer Show presents Legally Blonde:The Musical at The Waterfront Theatre (1412 Cartwright St, Granville Island) April 23-26. Visit http://carouseltheatre.ca or http://touchstonetheatre.com for tickets and information.
